Chief of NATO CBRN Reach Back

David enlisted into the British Army in 1979 as an officer in The Parachute Regiment. He joined the JCBRN Defence COE in 2010 after many years of service in different countries. His rather dubious MSc was obtained courtesy of the University of Madras. As for the OBE, a colleague once observed – “I didn’t realise they came free in packets of breakfast cereal”.


David is due to retire in January to his farm in Poland at which point the British Army will breathe a huge sigh of relief.
